It's Here

The first day of school.

The backpacks are ready.
After school snacks are packed.
Clothes are pressed and laid out.
Shoes and socks are set out.
School supplies are bagged.
Kids are excited.

And I am too. Excited to see what God has planned for this family this year. Excited to minister to my students. Excited to see how God uses them to teach me things. Excited to encourage my fellow teachers. Excited to pray for needs. Excited to share good news with parents. Excited to teach JESUS to little ones. Excited about new experiences. Excited about memory making.

And I am thankful too...

For the wisdom of seasoned teachers. For the support of my husband. For encouragement from others. For friends who are helping me this first week. For other friends who are praying. For a classroom of beautiful children and most of all for the absolute PEACE God has given me to take a step in this direction.

So as our Homeschool/Christian School experience begins....hang on....it's going to be a wild ride I am sure...but one that I am sure will be worth celebrating!
